Where Have You Been This Summer?

Would be really interested in hearing where folks traveled this summer (or are still traveling to).

For us, we made several trips to/from the Flathead Valley to Missoula. Our big trip was West to Seattle (2000k round trip). Went through western Montana (Holland Lake and Missoula), Idaho (Bonner's Ferry, Sandpoint), Eastern Washington (Spokane, Yakima, etc) and over the Snoquamie Pass into Seattle.

As far as the passes, the two between Missoula and Couer d'Alene were tough (pushing 220 degrees) but the Snoqualmie pass ok. Coming out of the Columbia River Gorge also steep and a tough climb (it was 99 degrees outside)

No major problems on trip except for a leaking landing gear (discovered 1 day before we were in Missoula where the dealership is....whew!) and a little scare when we were dry camping as the batteries ran dry before the landing gear was up - resolved it pretty easily.

Your adventures?

We spent a week in your hometown attending my class reunion and stayed at CF RV park. Enjoyed it very much, as it was my old hometown.

Where abouts is your hometown, if you don't mind saying?

I assume that (220 degrees) was coolant temperature!! Ha Ha!

We arrived in Olympia, WA on August 9. We have stayed at Olympia Campground, TravelCamp at American Lake on Fort Lewis, and currently at Washington Land Yacht Harbor in Lacey, WA while visiting with daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. My son-in-law is career Army and currently stationed at Fort Lewis.

We departed on August 4 and traveled across Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, corner of Utah, corner of Idaho, across Oregon down through Columbia River Gorge and up to Olympia, WA.

On the way home we will be traveling across Washington, Idaho, Montana, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and "back home again in Indiana". We will have traveled across 14 states by the time we return home in late September.

Great. If you are staying in the Flathead Valley as you get into Montana, let us know. We've stayed in Missoula quite a bit also so know some of the RV parks.

Yes, our favorite place in Missoula. Definitely stop there if you can. KOA is also nice if you want to be closer to town/shopping.
